As most of you know, I can be quite the cover whore, so I just love having the chance to be part of so many really great cover reveals. This one is certainly no exception.
Today’s cover reveal is for the second book in Emi Gayle’s 19th Year series, DAY AFTER, which will release from J. Taylor Publishing in May 2013.
Demon crypts. Vampire lairs. Glowing angels. Sexy sirens. The stuff of fiction.
Or so Winn Thomas always thought.
Since being accepted into the fold of the supernatural, he knows better. None of what he imagined is true, but everything he feared is, and binding himself to his changeling girlfriend until her nineteenth birthday will give him an education far beyond what he’d get at his human high school.
Luckily, Winn’s not giving up, he won’t back down, and he definitely isn’t going to run away with his tail between his legs. After all, only werewolves have tails. Right?
In this, the second of the 19th Year trilogy, Winn’s facing the challenge of one lifetime. If he doesn’t learn the truth about mythological creatures, his girlfriend Mac Thorne won’t either. That means, in six months, when she chooses her final form, she won’t know what to pick.
Winn, though, has his own ideas about Mac’s final selection—plans she knows nothing of.
He intends to have her pick human.
Whether she can or not.
Other Books in this series include:
After Dark (Book 1)
My thoughts: I really like this cover. It goes well with the cover of the first novel in the series and definitely peaks my interest in the story. There is a nice darkness to it that fits the blurb nicely, and I really like the shadowed cloaked figure to the right of who I assume to be the main character, Winn.
What do you think? Love it? Hate it? Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments section below. I love hearing what others think of these covers when they come out.
The Book Nook has another fantastic cover reveal for you today. This one come is the debut novel for YA author, Emi Gayle.
Back of the Book
What eighteen year old Mac Thorne doesn’t know will probably kill her.
In exactly eight months, five days, three hours and thirteen minutes, Mac has to choose what she’ll be for the rest of her life.
She has no choice but to pick. As a Changeling, it’s her birthright. To Mac, it’s a birthchore. Like going to school with humans, interacting with humans, and pretending to be human during the pesky daylight hours.
Once darkness descends, Mac can change into any supernatural form that exists — which makes her as happy as she can be. That is, until Winn Thomas, the biggest geek in her senior class figures out there’s more to what hides in the dark than most are willing to acknowledge.
In this first of the 19th Year Trilogy, Winn might know more about Mac than even she does, and that knowledge could end their lives, unless Mac ensures the powers-that-be have no choice but to keep him around.
Previous books in this series: None. This is the first of three.
My Thoughts: I like the tone here, love the darkness of it. I am a sucker for that cross–it draws me quite nicely. It leads me to believe the story is about vampires, though, if I were just to use the cover as my basis (yes, I know you can’t judge a book by it :P). Maybe the artist is using that for impulse sales or something (since sparklie vamps are all the rage), but the description mentions changelings, so I think we are safe. I’m definitely curious enough to want to read it, and that is the point, after all.
Bex Cover Rating: 4 of 5 stars.
